Qt3 Movie Podcast: American Made

Doug Liman brings us the story of a roguish drug smuggler against a backdrop of real-world political intrigue.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at http://www.quartertothree.com/fp/2017/10/02/qt3-movie-podcast-american-made/

Doug Liman: “We’re not making a biopic.”

Apparently some pilots died during the filming, too.

EDIT: I just got to the part where Tom mentions it.

Iran-Contra: an actual scandal.
The Clintons: an actual American crime family.

Contras did train in the U.S.


Saw this yesterday and enjoyed it. It wasn’t an amazing film, but I thought it was fun. Looking forward to listening to the podcast.

I was about half-way through this movie before I realized that Barry Seal was a horrible person, and I had gotten charmed by Tom Cruise into liking him.
